For the second year in a row, the Williamsport baseball team had Wheaton in the first round of the Maryland Class 2A West region tournament. And as it did last year to begin an improbable run to the state title with a 22-0 win, Williamsport blanked the Knights on Monday 17-0. The road to defending the title will be somewhat tougher for the Wildcats on Tuesday when they travel to play No. 2-seed Poolesville at 4:30 p.m. “(Poolesville) is a good team so we'll have to play very well in all phases of the game,” said coach David Warrenfeltz.

Williamsport went 2-for-2 in the Maryland Class 2A West soccer quarterfinals at North Hagerstown's Mike Callas Stadium on Thursday. The Wildcats did it in fashion with a pair of shutouts. In the opener, the boys defeated Century, 2-0. The girls followed with a 4-0 whitewashing of Walkersville. For the Williamsport boys, the victory means a quick turnaround in the weather-delayed playoffs as schools try to catch up on the schedule. The No. 3-seed Wildcats (10-4) will be on the road Friday night at No. 2-seed Liberty at 5. The girls have a day off before returning to action Saturday at home against No. 3-seed Oakdale at a time to be announced today, but most likely in mid-afternoon.

K.J. White collected the second-most yards for the South Hagerstown football team on Friday. He was second to tailback Isiaha Smith, who had 223 yards and five rushing touchdowns in a 43-0 shutout of Poolesville. White had 145 yards, but you'd never know it. It doesn't show up in the statistics. Yet, his contribution was almost as important as Smith's. White picked off two critical interceptions in the first half and had long returns on both to give Smith and the Rebels the short field for easy scores in a game which was won by the offense but dominated by South's defense.

IJAMSVILLE, Md. - Both teams struggled to move the ball most of the game on Friday night, but late in the fourth quarter Oakdale and North Hagerstown each had opportunities to make plays to win. The Hubs got it done on offense and defense, scoring with 37 seconds left to take the lead before intercepting a pass after Oakdale moved within striking distance to hang on for a 22-19 victory. The Bears (1-2) limited the production of North Hagerstown's pair of talented running backs, Isaiah Keyes and Kyle Hewlett, for much of the game as both offenses struggled to get anything going.

Confederate brass bands serenaded “Maryland, My Maryland” as the Southern army splashed across the Potomac River. Lee's inspirited veterans crossed at three points - Point of Rocks, Noland's Ferry near the Monocacy aqueduct and at White's Ford. All were in full view of the Union signal station on Sugarloaf Mountain, from whence the invasion sightings were transmitted to Washington. Lee announced his coming. He dared the Federals to stop him. The Potomac River, very low due to the worst recorded drought ever known, lured the Rebels forward.
